October 29, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – From life as an IT network engineer to engineering a whole new career,New York resident Walid Qadir Arsal is stretching his skills from a hot job in information technology to the even hotter frozen yogurt industry. And he gets to be the boss. Arsal will open his first Red Mango franchise location this December at 906 2nd Avenue in New York City, joining one of the fastest-growing frozen yogurt and smoothie chains in America.
"Red Mango products have an excellent taste that customers love," said Arsal. "I want to be part of the booming Fro Yo craze that is going on right now and I believe Red Mango is the perfect fit for me."
Having been in past positions where people looked to him for leadership and guidance, Arsal’s IT career has given him some amazing experience when it comes to leading a team and making sure the job gets done. Now he plans to put that experience to use in his own business at Red Mango.
"Red Mango has an outstanding support system, excellent products and very appealing store setups," said Arsal. "Overall Red Mango is doing pretty well in New York, and I look forward to providing the exceptional products the brand is known for with the best customer service to help take Red Mango to the next level here."
Arsal has tried the brand’s competitors. But the benefits of yogurt, special juices and smoothies from Red Mango are a step above the rest for customers.
Red Mango offers more than 40 flavors of all-natural frozen yogurt, fruit and yogurt parfaits, probiotic iced teas, and more than 20 delicious varieties of smoothies. Customers can garnish their yogurt with healthy, natural toppings including fresh fruit, nuts and granola as well as fun toppings like tasty cheesecake bits and yummy yogurt chips.
Red Mango, one of the fastest-growing retailers of all-natural nonfat and low fat frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, opened its first U.S. store in July 2007, and has since celebrated more than 230 store openings across the U.S., and more than 10 international store openings across Mexico, El Salvador and Uruguay. Red Mango has received numerous awards, including the prestigious Nation’s Restaurant News’ "Hot Concepts!" award and the industry-recognized SupplySide’s "Scientific Excellence Award," as well as best frozen yogurt honors in Dallas, Seattle, Las Vegas, Chicago, Utah and New York by highly-regarded independent publications. Headquartered in Dallas, Red Mango serves uniquely delicious frozen yogurt that is all-natural, nonfat and lowfat, gluten-free and fortified with beneficial live and active probiotic cultures like GanedenBC30®(Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), which probiotic helps support the immune and digestive systems when consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Red Mango is the first frozen yogurt retailer to earn the National Yogurt Association’s Live and Active Cultures seal for meeting the required criteria for healthy frozen yogurt. Red Mango expanded its menu to include satisfying meal options such as its all-natural fruit and yogurt parfaits and fresh fruit smoothies.
